Warnings: a bit of angst and a bit of fluff and cuss words
“I don’t want to know about your new man…”
Bucky lips wrapped around a cigarette, sucking in the smoke as he watched you and your new man from across the party. His jaw clenched as he saw you take the champagne that he held out to you. Bucky didn’t like him.
The two of you never dated. After you joined the Avengers, you and Bucky casually hooked up one night after a lot of drinking and it carried on for a while before you started seeing the new guy.
“We can’t keep doing this,” you said to him, “I’m seeing someone.”
God, the thought of you touching another guy made Bucky almost spit with anger.
He threw the cigarette over the balcony and chugged half of the glass of wine he had gotten from Tony not to long before.
“Jesus, Buck. You need another glass?” Steve teased, causing Bucky to glare at him.
His attention turned back to you, whom started talking to Natasha and Wanda while the new guy’s fingertips softly grazed your lower back.
Bucky liked you a lot. He tried so hard to make it more than what it was but he could tell you were resistant, that you thought of him as just a friend with benefits and that feelings weren’t a thing you thought about.
After a couple weeks of hooking up, he noticed that you would stay in his room with him, rather than sneak back to yours. He noticed that you’d allow him to cuddle you, snuggling back into his chest.
This was what started that small glimmer of hope that maybe you had fallen for him too. Unfortunately, he didn’t think that was the case.
Bucky’s hand gripped the glass so hard that it shattered in his hands, causing you to look over at the noise. “Fuck!” Bucky said, shaking the liquid off of his hands and locking eyes with you momentarily.
His legs carried him out of the room and the party goers went back to their conversations. You looked up to your date, giving him a soft smile, “I’m going off to the girls room. I’ll be back in a bit.”
“Okay,” he seemed distracted, talking to the other woman beside him, “have fun.”
You walked away, giving a last glance to your date and rolling your eyes as you saw him shamelessly flirting with yet another woman.
You hadn’t been seeing him long. You really only started seeing him because you were terrified of falling for Bucky. You couldn’t believe how close the two of you had gotten and you knew that you had to move on. You didn’t really like your date all that much, though.
It seems as though the feelings are mutual.
Something was wrong with Bucky. You held your dress and rushed up the stairs and towards Bucky’s room. The music downstairs faded the further away you got, turning the corner and knocking on Bucky’s door.
“Fuck off, Steve.” Bucky groaned from the other side, picking glass out of his flesh and growing more and more irritated as time passed.
“Uhm,” you cleared your throat, “it’s (Y/N).”
Bucky’s eyes went wide as he rushed and opened the door, “Yes?”
Your eyes were immediately drawn to his bloodied hand that dripped down his forearm and onto the wooden floors. “Jesus Christ, Bucky!”
You pushed him aside and pulled an old T-shirt from his drawer, wrapping it around his hand as he stared down at you. “I’m fine, darlin’. It’s no big deal.”
“Why’d you break the glass?” You asked him, applying pressure to his hand to stop the bleeding.
“I just… grabbed it too hard.”
You rolled your eyes at him, hearing him suck air through his teeth while you tied the shirt tightly around him.
“What’s been up with you? You’ve been acting weird.” You muttered, crossing your arm across your chest while Bucky sat down on his bed.
“Weird? How so?”
“You don’t talk to me, it seems like you hate me. I mean, I thought we were friends,” you grew frustrated, “you know that you can talk to me.”
“You’ve got someone else now. You don’t need to talk to me and vice versa.” Bucky said simply clenching his fist and feeling a small sting in his palm.
You threw your hands in the air, “I’m seeing someone, therefore I can’t be friends with you?!”
“You fucked me and left me!” Bucky gave in, screaming at the top of his lungs and towering over you.
Immediately your face grew red as you tried to piece together everything. “It was casual.”
“It wasn’t casual when you were in my room at three in the morning with a bottle of wine, snuggled against my chest while we watched movies! It wasn’t casual when I braided your hair after we showered together! It wasn’t casual when you made me breakfast every morning and greeted me with a kiss! People who only fuck don’t do shit like that!” Bucky defended, his throat cracking at the end of his rant.
Your eyebrows furrowed. You wanted to be angry but you couldn’t find yourself to yell. Bucky’s veins popped in his forehead, his eyes watering slightly. So slightly that you didn’t think you saw it right.
“You can’t get pissed off that I fell in love with you when you did everything right.” Bucky said quietly, a small tear slipping over his reddened face.
Before you could think about what you were doing, you grabbed his neck and pulled him down to your level and smashed your lips against his.
In no time, Bucky responded to your kiss by wrapping his arm around your waist and pulling you backward onto the bed.
All thoughts of the man you entered the party with left, and your body was consumed by Bucky.
Your lips tingled against his, his finger tips toying with the hem of your dress with you straddled his thick thighs.
“Fucking hell, doll.” He muttered when you started to grind your hips against yours.
You grinned into the kiss and ran your thumb over his jawline, feeling him take your bottom lip in between his teeth.
Your lips pressed kisses across his jaw, down his neck and onto his chest, feeling him pull you back up to his level and making eye contact with you. “I just have to know- do you love me too?”
Bucky’s sentence was quiet, almost as if he didn’t want to say those words yet. He looked expectantly into your eyes, almost making you melt. You had never seen such a vulnerable side to Bucky and it almost broke your heart.
“I wouldn’t be here if I didn’t.”
The sentence was simple and short, but it made Bucky the happiest man alive as he kissed you hard once again. He held you close to him as you cuddled on his bed, not really making any moves and just enjoying each other’s company.
“What’re you gonna tell your date downstairs?” Bucky asked, humor lacing his voice.
You thought back to the brunette he was speaking to when you left, “Something tells me he’ll be fine.”
You rolled over and kissed him again, feeling his lips turn up into a smile.
